ABOUT CAPE AIR
CELEBRATING 30 YEARS!
Since our first flight between Boston and Provincetown in 1989, Cape Air has provided year-round service to some of the most beautiful destinations in the world.
Shortly after that first flight, we expanded our service across southern New England to Hyannis, Nantucket, New Bedford, Martha’s Vineyard and Providence, RI. In 1993, we began offering flights between South Florida and the Keys and in 1998, our Caribbean route took flight. Finally, in 2004 we began service in Micronesia and added two new aircraft to our fleet, the ATR-42. These aircraft served our routes between Guam, Rota, and Saipan until the end of our Micronesia service in 2018.
Now, Cape Air operates a fleet of 83 Cessna 402s and 4 Britten-Norman Islanders, with up to 525 flights per day during high season. Last year Cape Air carried over 500,000 passengers, making us one of the largest regional airlines in the United States.
A new milestone was reached in September of 2019 when the Tecnam P2012 Traveller touched down at our Hyannis HQ to join the fleet. Equipped with the latest avionics from Garmin, the new G1000 Nxi and powered by two modern 375 HP Lycoming piston engines, the industry-changing Tecnam P2012 Traveller has been designed from the start to be a very versatile and flexible aerial platform.
Throughout the 35 cities we serve in the US and Caribbean, we are recognized for our outstanding customer service. As an employee-owned company, we pride ourselves on the simple mantra that encourages MOCHA HAGoTDI. It means to Make our Customers Happy and Have a Good Time Doing It.
